Book: The Athlete's Plate : Adam Kelinson
Real Food for High Performance
For endurance athletes, there is no substitute for real food.
The Athlete's Plate: Real Food for High Performance debunks the myth that busy athletes lack the time to fuel with real food.
Professional chef and endurance athlete Adam Kelinson guides athletes from grocery store to kitchen, offering time-saving shopping and cooking strategies that make preparing delicious, nutritious meals a pleasure.
Kelinson demonstrates how buying local, seasonal foods will save time and money.
He explains how organic whole foods provide more nutrients than conventionally grown food and how a minimalist approach to cooking is more convenient and nutritious than laborious gourmet recipes.
The Athlete's Plate provides 85 delicious, quick-prep recipes to fuel the active lifestyle.
Kelinson's worry-free dishes include smoothies and juices; power snacks; appetising soups, salads and dressings; carb-filled pastas, polenta, and noodle bowls; lean protein dishes featuring seafood, poultry, pork, and savoury vegetarian preparations; and satisfying desserts.
The Athlete's Plate reflects Kelinson's years of experience as a professional chef, endurance athlete, and student of the relationship between nutrition and the environment.
The book offers a no-nonsense way to balanced nutrition, incorporating all the nutrients athletes need to fuel and recover for training and racing.
Athletes will learn how to make nutrition an enjoyable part of their lifestyle instead of a limiter on their performance.
